The Sound of Silence


In music this indicates “silence”. Since I was  young boy, I knew this rule when annotated on my Trumpet score. It usually indicated a certain number of measures-rest. To be prepared for my next entrance, it was necessary to continue to “count” beats/measures. No one ever wished to mis-count and “honk” early. As first chair, it was my responsibility to quietly count the final measure AND nod with each beat. We never had a problem. We need to develop a system of procedures in my country as we move through the challenges of a totoally new “America”. We wanted change and change can bring pain. WE need to “keep the count” and TACET!  Them move on , in unison. That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates. AMEN
